So this Black steals a car and then gets into a crash killing a 9-year-old White kid while also injuring his 5-year-old brother.
When will this problem be addressed?
A suspected carjacker who crashed into a family’s sedan near St. Louis Lambert International Airport last spring, fatally injuring a 9-year-old boy, was charged Friday with the boy’s murder.
The boy, Caleb Lee, had just returned from a Disney World trip with relatives when their car was hit by an SUV that was fleeing police on April 25. Caleb died May 5.
St. Louis County prosecutors charged Darian Cummings, 17, on Friday with one count of second-degree murder, three counts of second-degree assault and one count of tampering with a motor vehicle.
Cummings’ bail is set at $1 million.
Cummings was 16 on the day of the crash and has been held by juvenile authorities since. He turned 17 about a month later. On Thursday, Cummings was certified to stand trial as an adult. He had not been publicly identified until Friday.
Caleb and Evan.
